COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A growing style in the Northwest, Dark IPA’s feature all the tasty attributes of a standard IPA, yet juxtaposed against a black malt canvas. Discord is not short on character, with a prominent malt profile that meets up with the bitterness and hop presence from five different hops. A variety of roasted malts provide color and flavor, yet this beer has a lighter body reminiscent of an IPA, not heavy like a porter or stout.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Sample at the Seattle brewpub. Dark brown color with some amber around the edges and a medium light beige head that recedes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of toasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of piney hops and sweet malt. The finish is malty up front with a short resiny hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

thetmaxx (732) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Poured from the bottle. I think I’ve had this on tap at the now defunct Sacramento store.: ( poured dark, brownish reddish. Aroma is of dank hopPS. Thick head and good lacing. Flavour shows the roasted grains in a way that is not reminiscent of most CDAs. This is much different than a CDA. NOT bad at all though just different.

dfinney23 (1573) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Dark and roasty but with a noticeable hop bite -- must be a black IPA. Well, brown anyway. Oddly fizzy.

Thisis12ptfont (808) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Aroma is dominated by hops and a very subtle chocolate smell. Dark body with a thin foam rim. Very dark flavors of black patent malt, cocoa, caramel and strong bittering hops. Overall, the black ipa bitterness is very subtle, but there. I;d give this a B+ rating.
